 Note: If you are a WMS library or using full WorldShare Collection Manager, see Use Collection Manager for content from a specific provider.

If you need access to Collection Manager Fundamentals (the Metadata tab in the WorldShare interface), follow the steps to Create a Collection Manager Fundamentals account.

Verify your collections have not been manually selected

If your institution has manually selected a collection in full, OCLC will not overwrite your selections. Before the initial load of holdings from your provider, we recommend that you verify that the collection has not been manually selected.

Verify that your collections have not been manually selected

Before the initial load of your collections, please:

  1. Sign in to the WorldShare interface at your library's WorldShare URL https://yourlibrary.share.worldcat.org/wms [Replace yourlibrary with your library's identifier].
  2. Navigate to Metadata > Collection Manager Fundamentals and locate the search box.
  3. Select Collections as the Data Type and All Collections as the Scope. Click Search.
  4. Once you have returned the collection in a search, perform one of the following:
    • If the collection is selected in FULL: You will need to deselect it. Our system will not be able to overwrite the collection with the title data directly from your provider. If you have holdings set in WorldCat, de-selecting the collection will remove these holdings. Holdings will be added after OCLC loads the collection (if WorldCat Holdings is enabled in Institution Settings)
    • If the collection is partially selected to reflect a subset of the titles available in the collections: The system will overwrite your title selections and collection data. If you want to preserve the title selections and collection data before OCLC overwrites it, do so before making a request for your collection to be loaded by OCLC. Within your collection, navigate to Titles > More Actions. Use the option to Download titles in local holdings and choose a format to download a spreadsheet of your title data
    • If the collection is NOT selected: Proceed to the instructions How to request automated collection loading

 Note: Once the holdings feed is set up, OCLC will select all applicable collections according to the data received from the vendor.

How to request automated collection loading

Either contact your Teton representative, or contact OCLC Support with the following message. Replace [xxx] with your information:

Please load my Teton collections.  My OCLC symbol is [xxx]. My Registry ID is [xxx].

See if your collection loaded

We recommend that you wait until your collection is available before you proceed so that all of the settings will be available in Collection Manager Fundamentals.

The amount of time it takes for your titles to be available depends on the timing of your request, how often your provider sends data, when OCLC loads the data, and the place of your institution's data in a queue. The time for the initial loading process varies from about one week to one month.

 Caution: Once you have requested to have your collections selected automatically, do not add, delete, or update any of the titles within the collection. If there is an issue with the titles selected or missing from your collection, please contact OCLC Support with examples.  

To see if your collection has loaded in the WorldShare interface:

  1. Sign in to the WorldShare interface at your library's WorldShare URL (https://yourlibrary.share.worldcat.org/wms [Replace yourlibrary with your library's identifier]).
